and now the post-mortem can be done in minutes.
Way back in the primordial ooze of the early-mid 2000's, MySpace actually gained initial notoriety as a place for musicians and bands to congregate. That was one (small) reason why it always had good media functionality (for the time)... Auto-play MP3's, highly visual backgrounds, CSS, etc. (The other 85% of the reason was so that people could post sparkly glitter GIFs...)
When it got re-purchased after Facebook took over both the upper and "lower" classes of the internet social media space, MySpace decided to try to get back to its roots somewhat as a band-catering destination.
Who knows if it'll ever succeed (again) at that, but the battle for general social media presence is long-since over, so they had to do something with it.
Please tell us more of your brilliant insights Shortguy881, we are all awaiting more of your precious pearls of wisdom.
That's OK, we still have four months for the "dust on the detector" story.
Science is continuous, not discrete - stories that begin with "It's Official" can be safely filed under, "we'll see".
Which is a Good Thing.
I look forward to the day when I can tell Comcast "sorry, I'm switching to gravity."
Yep, that has been my experience. When I was in high school, in an accelerated/advanced science/math program, most of the kids were cheating on their lab reports. I had one teacher, in biochemistry, who really taught me the value of personal integrity. Most kids that was lost on, unfortunately. Surprisingly enough that lesson is what taught me to rely and adhere to principles, rather than doing whatever it takes to get ahead - I may not be rich, but I'm happy with who I am as a person.
Perhaps not coincidentally, the kids who went on to mostly cheat became ardent socialists, and I wound up an ancap.
New stories with back and forward references would make more sense. If you pull up a Slashdot story from Google and read it you'll never know there's a Slashback with an update or correction. A filter could be applied for exclusion or presentation changes based on tag from that point forward.
Put a feature request into the Soylent github - hopefully

The trouble with merely modding down comments like these down is we don't have a "long winded, no idea what he's talking about" mod.
This is simple crypto optimization, like happens every year. It's necessary and expected, and
Personally, I'm intrigued as I have a very old wallet I've forgotten the password to, and commission-based cracking services have been unable to touch it. Sadly, it's not worth much more than the EC2 time but it's a bur in my saddle to have it outstanding.
the Tea Party wants to reduce representation.
I seriously doubt you have even the slightest clue what you're on about. This has never been an impediment to you.
